    Routine Snow Removal in Anchorage, AK

     
    Following each snowfall, Anchorage city graders clear the streets by pushing the snow to the side, but in doing so the roadway gets just a little bit narrower every time they do that. So another part of routine winter maintenance is for them to come through occasionally and remove some of the snow. They do that by carving a few feet off each side of the street and putting it into a big berm down the middle. Industrial-sized snow blowers then scoop it up and blow it into a continuously moving line of dump trucks that keep pulling up alongside. The trucks haul it away to a city approved dumping location. Photo take on Saturday morning 1/4/14, SE Anchorage (Alaska) hillside.
